test_run_1.m doesn't do anything untoward, such as using the 'prompt'
function, I presume?

It should continue if you type 'fg', which puts it in foreground again.
(Although I seem to lose the keyboard echo, i.e. I can't see what I type
but Octave does read it and react to it.)

Octave in background, given a script input file as above, works
in 2.0.16 and in 2.1.30 under Red Hat Linux on a Pentium.  By now,
2.1.30 is pretty stable -- why not upgrade?
